Abstract : The scientific and technological trends in communist countries cannot help but evoke a sense of urgency. If these trends continue, and if the communist ideology remains unchanged, the Free World must expect serious economic and political difficulties in the future. To help prevent this, we have focused our attention on what we consider to be the major problem areas - ineffective R+D cooperation of the Free World and its fragmented, cumbersome information system. As a partial solution we propose: a Free World alliance for science and technology; greater emphasis on education of scientists in countries emerging on the world scene; reduction of the one way flow of technical information to communist countries (or, inversely, increase our intake); a U. S. information system which would more effectively use government and private resources. (Author)
